Ratings: Stanley Cup Tops Monday

Stanley Cup Ratings 2015

NBC’s coverage of the sixth and deciding game of the Stanley Cup Final averaged 8 million total viewers and a 2.8 demo rating, up sharply from Game 5 and easily leading Monday in both measures.

In total audience it marked the third-most watched Stanley Cup Final Game 6 on record (since 1995), and versus last year’s Rangers/Kings Game 5 clincher it was up 11 percent.

Averaging 5.55 million viewers, Blackhawks/Lightning was the second-most watched Stanley Cup Final series on record.


ABC | The Bachelorette (6.3 mil/1.8) was flat, while The Whispers (3.9 mil/0.9) dipped another tenth.

FOX | So You Think You Can Dance (4.3 mil/1.3) rose 10 percent and two tenths.

    Very happy to see the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup on home ice for the first time since 1938 (versus the Toronto Maple Leafs).

    Go Blackhawks!!! Best team in hockey – they are clearly becoming a national team to watch based on the ratings.

    Go Hawks! What were the ratings for the clinching game between NY and LA last year? I figure they’d be higher coming from the 2 biggest markets.

    I do find it amusing that rookie Trevor van Riemsdyk is pictured with the Cup here rather than a Toews or a Kane. :)

  7. KC says:

    Matt, what were ratings in Tampa? Go Hawks!

    Great game
    Congratulations to the Blackhawks for their 2nd Stanley Cup in 3 years and 3rd in their last 6. In these days of salary cap restrictions it’s quite a tremendous accomplishment .

    I’m living on the other side of the world, but I was able to watch some of the game online. I’m so glad they won! My favorite team was playing my family’s favorite team in the finals, and it was an awesome series. Go Blackhawks!
